Summer Fades

With summer slowly fading away, we begin our transition into autumn.

Cherish the long summer days while you still can; the coziest season is coming upon us.

Get the look here.

Lady In Lace

We love this teal lace maxi dress– especially with such a lovely backdrop!

There`s nothing like the luxury of wearing a stunning dress while exploring a stunning city, such as Paris.

Although if travel is not in your near future, it`s a good thing Saskatoon is considered the Paris of the Prairies!

We even get to indulge in French desserts, such as the decadent macaron, thanks to the Little Bird Patisserie in Riversdale- the perfect place to spend an afternoon drinking tea and eating sweets while feeling fancy in your favourite dress.

One of the great things about this lace dress is that it comes in a multitude of colours– all of which are available in store at Tonic, or online at Farminista!

Cozy Up with a Blanket Scarf

Cool weather is very slowly making itself known over here in southern BC, and all over the country,  that means that cozy layers are the way to go!

I love giant scarves, and what better way to stay warm than to wrap a blanket around you?  That’s what I did when styling this look for my sister, Jordyn (similar blankets here).  What’s even better is that the company Sackcloth & Ashes donates one blanket to your local homeless shelter when you purchase one!  I love companies who strive to make a positive impact on the community around them.

Also, how darling is this Moroccan clutch?  It’s a handmade in Morocco, from artisans who receive fair trade pay.  The intricate details are so swoon-worthy, and it adds something special to an ordinary outfit.

Stay warm friends!

The Fall Tunic

Is it winter yet, or is it still fall? For a lot of people, November means winter- but since there’s no snow on the ground (knock on wood) we can, for a brief time, ignore the Christmas decorations popping up and just enjoy the fall weather.

This is where the long sleeved tunic comes in! We shot these pictures on a particularly nice fall day, but we suggest our absolute favourite leggings (for when it gets undeniably colder), that can be paired and layered under anything. Tunic + Leggings= instant fall outfit that transitions nicely into winter.

This forest green tunic foregoes a waistline to give us a sophisticated baby-doll cut. The crochet lace detailing along the neck is a major feature, but we also love the 3/4 length crocheted bell sleeves.

We love this button down rose printed tunic for its feminine, yet casual cut- it’s easy to dress up with some jewelry and the right shoes, or dress down with your fall boots and and blanket scarf.

And for the boho babe in all of us, there’s the tunic dress in burgundy, with a slightly rustic feel to it.

This one has an elastic waistline and is super comfortable- the lace up neckline complete with hanging tassels is our favourite detail.

Another bohemian inspired piece we love is the deep purple paisley printed tunic!

Or, my personal favourite, the classical drapy black tunic.

More Maxis Please!

PSA: Maxi dresses are in- and they’re here to stay! Finding the right style can be challenging (especially when taking into consideration your height, shape, etc.) but these days there are so many different cuts to choose from, there’s something for everyone.

We did a fun photo shoot with our favourite floral maxi, which we adore for its feminine, vintage vibes (i.e. fabric covered buttons, tie up waist line, dreamy cherry blossom print).

Maxi dresses are probably so popular because they make us feel beautiful- there’s something about wearing a floor length dress, adorned with lace or floral prints, that can make you feel extra special.

Long sleeved maxis are a great option for winter fashion as well- you can hide some warm leggings underneath and no one will know  better. We also love finding a maxi dress that is not only flattering, but also incredibly comfortable!

We like to let this type of dress speak for itself, so we pair it with simple, elegant jewelry.

If you love the idea of a floral maxi dress, but long sleeves just aren’t for you, we also have some beautiful strappy style maxis.
